Newly refurbished in 2019, the 30,277 GT Insignia carries just 688 passengers. This is a ‘small ship’ boasting many big-ship features. Dress is informal in a luxurious setting, with an accent on personalised service and five-star cuisine.

Guests are generally older, well-travelled, and convivial. Much thought is evident in the furnishing of public spaces and staterooms. The comfortable public leather seating, teak loungers, and impressive library with ceiling murals and telescopes spoil guests at sea. Dining is open-seated with excellent menus in four main restaurants. Read more

While this is not a family ship, children enjoy the ports by day and hot tubs by night. The ambiance resembles that of a private country club - casual, yet elegant.

Onboard Experience

  • Dining

    Dining on the Insignia

    All dining is open-seated and dining is when you choose. There are four different restaurants under the direction of Master Chef Jacques Pépin. The Grand Dining Room features ‘American-inspired continental cuisine’ in an elegant atmosphere with fine table settings and top service. The Toscana Italian Restaurant offers genuine Tuscan cuisine and wines, with unique touches. Read more

    The Polo Grill features steakhouse and seafood in a leather-chair club setting. (Reservations, but no extra charge for these last two venues.) The lido Waves Grill – indoors and outdoors – is the ship’s self-service buffet. Complimentary room service is available from a separate menu, and includes continental breakfast, sandwiches and desserts. For a hot breakfast the Waves Grill is best. Afternoon tea is served at 4pm daily in the Horizon Lounge. For early risers Horizon is also the place for a quiet bite.

  • Bars

    Bar on the Insignia

    Before dining, chat and have pre-dinner drinks in the Grand Bar or Polo Bar. Martinis with its club atmosphere, and Horizons with forward floor-to-ceiling views, are the places for cocktails, background music, and perhaps some dancing.

Highlights

  • The acclaimed Insignia has undergone a multimillion-dollar transformation to create a virtually new ship that is both sleek and elegantly charming.

  • Interact with the deck plans to locate and learn about suites and staterooms, dining venues, activities, special features and other points of interest. Her decks are resplendent in the finest teak, custom stone and tile work, and her lounges, suites and staterooms boast luxurious, neo-classical furnishings.

  • Memorable dining begins with open-seating, as it allows you to dine when you are ready and with whomever you choose.

Cabins

Most cabins have an outside view, and two-thirds have a private balcony. The standard interior and outside cabins are smallish but comfortable, with twin/queen-size bed and ‘best beds at sea’, bathrobes, plenty of built-in cabinets, flat-screen television, DVD player, writing desk, satellite phone, wireless Internet, and personal safe. Décor is attractive with dark wood accents. Maid service is twice daily. Cabins with balcony have a fridge mini-bar, lounge area with breakfast table, and balcony with teak chairs and table. Speedy room service is available from a separate in-room dining menu.

Suites are much like that of a top hotel room, with expanded living areas, bath with a tub, and ocean views across the teak deck verandah. Suites come with butler service, priority check-in and dining reservations, and a welcoming bottle of Champagne. Four Vista Suites at the bow have a very private teak-decked balcony, separate bedroom facing the sea, top electronic systems, and a Jacuzzi bathtub. The six very large Owner’s Suites overlook the stern.)
